The Silkworm House - Var - Sleeps 6

PEACE & SUNSHINE IN A GREEN VALLEY 

The Silkworm House in Var, a cottage in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur

CHARMING WELL-EQUIPPED 18TH C. FARMHOUSE WITH LARGE COVERED TERRACE

An enchanting stone farmhouse sleeps 6 + 1-2 cots, built for silkworms in the 18th century, when the French silk industry was at its height. The house has been recently restored and is well equipped, but retains all the charm of the original. There are 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin, 3 bathrooms, and a spacious kitchen/living room with an open fireplace. Radiators for winter in every room, air conditioning in the 2 top bedrooms. A huge covered terrace with sliding glass doors. Each double room has a terrace of its own, climbing the hill under the ancient oak tree that shades the whole house. Mulberry trees in the garden, where rosemary, sage, forsythia, irises and oleanders tumble in rather un-French profusion. Plenty of garden furniture. House and garden face south-west across a little valley of wild flowers and vines, towards spectacular sunsets. A river for swimming, paddling, fishing, and a Roman canal. Shops, markets, restaurants, mediaeval villages, sport and culture, lakes and sea, all within easy reach. The peaceful valley itself the perfect place to stretch out in the sun with a book and a glass (or two!) of wine.

Pets welcome.

Minimum 4 week rental November to February (long term winter let). Please contact owner for rental prices.

£50 discount for stays of two weeks or more June to September.
